made the Luisa Weiss apple marzipan cake again, as I had a bunch of small apples I wanted to use up. The recipe calls for a baking time of 1hr 10 minutes but it needs a bit longer for the middle to be done. Good recipe but I'm still searching for that perfect simple simple simple apple cake. My ideal is something I ate after a hike once in Südtirol. Maybe it was just a mental thing.
Anyway, the recipe calls for 200 grams of marzipan, and my package had 250 grams. The 50 grams left over I made into "marzipan potatoes" -- rolled in Valrhona cocoa which was a major upgrade. May make them myself for Christmas this year -- I usually buy.
Not sure if this qualifies for simple simple simple but it's our go to and very easy: David Lebovitz / Dorie Greenspan French Apple Cake
